Skillet Sunday-Thai Red Curry Noodles

I made this a few weeks ago.  It is really quick and easy to make this dish.  You can adjust the amount of curry to make it as mild or as hot as you like.

1 can ( 13.5 ounce) can light coconut milk
5 teaspoons red curry paste
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 green pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 small zucchini
½ lb raw shrimp peeled
2 tablespoons lime juice
8 ounces wide rice noodles

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Heat wok over medium heat. Add the coconut milk. Stir in curry paste, brown sugar, fish sauce and red pepper flakes.  Stir the mixture with a spoon until the curry paste is blended. Add the shrimp. Simmer the mixture until the shrimp turn pink. That will take about 10 minutes. 

While the shrimp are cooking cut the peppers into matchstick size pieces. Cut the zucchini into quarters and then chop into pieces. Once the shrimp are cooked add the vegetables to the curry coconut milk mixture.  Cook for 2 minutes. Add the lime juice Stir in the noodles and mix to thoroughly coat.

Serves 6
